Framework 3: Implementation Drivers

Implementation Drivers are key components of capacity and infrastructure that influence a program’s success.  They are the core components needed to initiate and support classroom, building, and district level change.

The next Active Implementation Framework we would like to discuss is Implementation Drivers.

Implementation Drivers are based on common features that exist among many successfully implemented programs and practices. The structural components and activities that make up each Implementation Driver contribute to the successful and sustainable implementation of programs and innovations.

There are three types of Implementation Drivers:

  • Competency Drivers
  • Organization Drivers
  • Leadership Drivers

When integrated and used collectively, these drivers ensure high-fidelity and sustainable program implementation. Let’s briefly look at each driver.
